The Reformation and the Modern World

It is commonly accepted that the scientific revolution was the chief historical/intellectual event that inspired the rise of modernity in the Western cultural world. Without contesting this assumption, this course will examine the role of two other revolutions as major contributors to the modern world outlook: the cumulative technological revolution traceable to the early Middle Ages, and the Reformation, a religious revolution contemporaneous with the Copernican revolution. $10 materials fee due with registration.

10–11:30 a.m., September 22 – November 12

St. Paul, MN
